Oviva offers personalised support from a specialist dietitian to help you improve your health, achieve your goals and stay motivated.

Once you access an Oviva programme, you can use the app to keep a photo food diary and track progress against your personalised goals. Your dietitian will support you by providing regular feedback on your progress, helping you to maintain a healthier lifestyle. You will also receive access to information tailored to your specific needs, such as managing type 2 diabetes or healthy eating on a budget.

This app has been updated and is currently under reassessment.
